Relationships based on a strong bond of common ground.
Dragon Age Origins. Alistair is shamed, Zevran fails to make it better.
FFXII. The beginning of the end. Ivalice changes; the trouble with time is that every passing year devalues itself as currency.
FFXII. Ffamran and Fran, Basch and Vossler, Ffamran and Cidolphus. Three interludes, and the methodologies of freedom.
Dragon Age II AU. Anders is a vet without a valid visa, Garrett has someone else's cat.
History of the Runestaff. Hawkmoon and D'Averc. The architect that Jehamia spoke of was a Frenchman, not a Boar.
Exiled lions find companionship with each other and eat some humans.
FFXII. Basch and Fran. No bouquet more appropriate than one made of swords.
FFXII. Basch, Balthier, Fran and Vossler. Sex is nowhere near as complicated as the aftermath.
Professionals (CI5) / Rats of Tobruk (WW1). Doyle's just joined the army. Logically he knows the reasons why, but no one warned him about the culture shock. The loneliness is beginning to hurt, right up until the moment he falls into a reluctant conscript's arms and sweeps him off his feet. Of the 'men who get into a fist fight together suddenly become best friends forever' trope.
Dragon Age II / Court of the Lion fusion (in flavour rather than literally). Sebastian loses faith. Fenris re-establishes it, along with the foundations of an empire. Written pre-Inquisition.
FFXII. Ffamran meets Fran, as well as the rest of the YPA.
